Comment: Intergalactic currency (Score 0) 46

Wouldn't crypto currencies be standard currency when we make contact? Other species would use the same thing. They could even insure it, or send money across the universe. And I'm pretty sure Bitcoin will win out here on Earth by just swallowing its competitors. Which would make it earth's currency.

Ok, let's think of the ultimate test of AI. Make a giant daison sphere and program it to "survive". How will it respond? It will survive by forming a symbiotic relationship with a person. This will trump any machine you can think of. It will behave exactly if it were alive, but it isn't.

First off, there are 14 spheres including the master one, and they're burrillium. We have one (you're welcome). Earth came through with the hook up (think THC), all natural and healthy. The guys who originally built the first sphere are bypeds like us. They're technically 40 million years old, but with the ability to step outside the space time continuam it's hard to tell exactly.

So suppose I make contact, (I did), sphere and everything. It happens on camera (it did), they hear the noises just like me and I interpret them for the government watching. But the government denies its happening, what can I do? Who can I call? *hint* no black holes and ozone can be used to cure cancer
